The biggest reason for me is that is eases collaborative development.
Anybody can reliably find the sources, for debugging, for making
changes to it, etc.  It might not always be easy to find the right tag
in the right source code repository.

A community only really starts to shine when people fix each others

Things like running a campaign to clean up the categorization mess are
greatly simplified by having a central repository with sources.
